It would be nice if users could change usernames themselves. I could see this being abused, so why not set a limit, like you cannot change your username more than once every two months or so.

The current system of asking an admin has been working well for over 10 years. Its extremely small minority who change their display names even once. Let alone multiple times. So I don't see the point in making system-wide modifications to the software to accommodate that feature. The admin team in place has been more than up to the task of changing display names when asked.
